Just wondering who else is doing any sewing projects lately. I made a new friend online who has a business that works to help animal shelters and donates toys, catnip, treats various items for cats and kittens. she prefers only to do this for cats but also loves dogs. I make catnip toys for her to donate ans so that is what I have been working on...intill I run out of cotton scraps any way. it is fun ans since I grow my own catnip it is easy to do and fun for me to keep me from getting into trouble!
Also working on:
Making my own flannel PJ's for when Winter starts!
repairing our work clothes (patching mostly)
making fabric gift bags for the local charities to sell.
making snowmen wall hangings to sell at Holiday bazaars.

So, what are the other seamstresses creating or repairing or wanting to sew when you have a few minutes to do so?? Just thought I would ask because I like to know what else is out there in the creative sewing world

I don't have too many "small" sewing projects. I just finished the nursery for my newest DGD - all Bambi. Still need to make a few more burp cloths for her. I have a king size Log Cabin quilt that I need to finish before Christmas.

I've looking at a few of the pillowcase projects and might start making those, just to clear out my stash.

Seaexplore has been working on a quiet book for her daughter. Those look fun!

I've been BFF's with my sewing machine this summer.

I've made a pleated crib skirt, a pleated/nonpleated full/queen bed skirt, crib chew rail, curtain tie backs. All for my DD's room.

Right now I'm making a quiet book for DD. I've been using vinyl. Love the stuff! I have found that the key tomsewing with it is sewing tape. It sticks it really well and doesn't gum up the machine! No more binder clips trying to hold the layers together.

I have been sewing like mad when I get a free 30 minutes, and have enjoyed every second. I love to sew, and for the past few years haven't had much time to do so. I still don't have much time, but am squeezing it in anyway. Happy stitching everybody!

LOL!! Meela you sound like me and my Guy gets all annoyed because I have to layout everything so I can sew pieces in order. I got some of the coolest patterns from a friend who makes them and have been working on some Woodsman dolls. I am having so much fun but it is a little slow going till I get the hang of it. I want to sell some after I make the first one to look like my Guy. But when there are a few minutes I am running upstairs to work on the pieces. I just LOVE sewing

Hi! I'm working on a blue jean quilt. I think it will be a little more difficult then the first one I sewed but it will be worth it!

I'm getting ready for my yearly Bonnie Hunter mystery that I wait all year for...I just finished basting my Son's denim quilt & I just finished hand quilting my Patriotic quilt....I need to baste my Split 9 Patch, so I can put it on my frame [it's a small floor one] .... I'm having a friend of mine baste my mystery from last year measuring 120" x 120"...that will probably take me years to hand quilt..Ha....Then I have my forever project, which everyone has, it's a yo-yo quilt, or coverlet I should say...then I have 5 BOM's I'm working on...very, very busy. Not enough time in the day especially when I'm on this darn computer! Ha..

Hi Tildagirl,
Yes I am still sewing! Not into quilting as much as repairing clothes. Not any $ to replace so I am pretty good at patching knees, buns and elbows and making dog and cat toys too. Gotta keep the critters happy or they will get wild in the house. Can't wait till my catnip comes back in the Spring, I am almost out!

I also need to finish a hat for the kid who bags at the grocery. I make some and he saw it and asked if he could get one. Sure why not I said! I know he doesn't have $ to pay but it's worth the smile to just gift it!!!

So Happy Sewing to All, and to All a Good Day!

I've been sewing up a storm. Quilts for new babies, crowns for princesses, zip bags for odds and ends, chapstick holders, and most recently eye patches for my daughter's preschool valentines party.

I just finished a single bed quilt for my granddaughter using on point blocks and have the topper done for one grandson. It has Friendshop Stars and some nine patches in it. I need to find backing fabric for it before it is quilted.

I have started a Churn Dash quilt for another granddaughter and need to get a raggy quilt done for a new baby granddaughter. I have the fabrics, just need the time!

Catzscrapper, how do you make your dog toys? I am paying out each time my Maltese/Silky terrier chews a store bought one up!
